Do u mean this screen?nocash wrote:Unfortunately it's running rather slow on my old PC, even in 320pixel mode it seems to require a lot of unneccessary rendering. For example, in the "CAUSE YOU OBVIOUSLY SUCK!!!" screen, it's clearing the background thrice.
OK, i can explain.
You're right, there are three renders, the Solid Black BG. The Semi-Transparent Black BG (for the fade out) and the Huge Character Display. In Addition to this, there is a text Display (YOU OBVIOUSLY SUCK!!!) which runs through a overly bloated string to display-text function which scales every single letter by 2x. If i took out the text and replaced it with a single image containing the text this probably wouldn't slow down the GPU as much. But still, this is not the reason why...
After u lose to a Boss, the game stops all of the callback functions that were running during the Battle. This means all processing, CPU and GPU, are not longer done at the start of vertical blank, but rather at the end of the drawing. This unfortunately means there is less time to complete whatever process that needs to get done.
What u want me 2 do??
I got lazy OK ^_~
I tested everything on real hardware a while ago and if i can remember correctly it DOES slow down on real hardware too at that point in time (don't quote me on that).
But i also tested the game play while fighting 1 boss at a time (MONO MODE) and there was no slow down at all. The only exception to that would be fighting SLASH WOMAN. That rotating stage does like a billion calculations every vblank so the slowdown is normal speed ^_^...
Question, does your no$psx slowdown during gameplay in 320x240 (while your fighting a boss)?? if so, that's not normal (unless you're fighting 2 bosses -MELEE MODE- )
Thanks $_$nocash wrote:Ah, I was already wondering how you got it working at 640x480 pixels, looked like magic
And thank you for analyzing my game with your no$psx. Now i feel special ^_^
Sorry Man... All i can say is that i'm not a Hardware Engineer... I'm not even a Software Engineer. I'm a weekend programmer. This is my hobby. I only know how to use the tools that i got. If u got a no$psx patch i can use instead of the stupid *.DAT license files i got, by all means send em' my way ^_~nocash wrote:And I came across a problem with my BIOS clone (ie. in no$psx, it's working only with the original Sony BIOS). The problem is that you are using this BIOS patch/hack (located at at 80010B68h and 8001B85Ch in the ISO from 20 Dec 2013)
When i compile, this is what it looks like...
Makecti /sa infousa.dat _xa output.cti
Buildcd -ioutput.img output.cti
Stripiso 2352 output.img output.iso
Copy /b US_LICENSE.dat+output.iso output2.iso
Do u want the *.DAT files so u can hack em? Or look into what they're doing, at least, to prevent your no$psx from working??
& Thanks Again
You know what... i tried that, but i ended up not doing it because it didn't work right with the password feature and the weapon select menu... i'll have to look into the △-buttonnocash wrote:Oh, and in the menues: It would be nice if it would also accept the X-button, alternately to pressing the START-button!
